STARBARIANS: A Happy Friday cartoon by Harry Partridge

I don't know if I've ever mentioned Harry Partridge on this blog before but he has to be one of the best comedic animators of 2012. His video Starbarians made me shoot tea out of my nose the first time I watched it. It has almost reached 1 million views in 6 months but Starbarians has already been translated into several different languages.

And that's just one episode! It's obvious that Starbarians would become a hit cult of it became a whole series! So I guess this is a plea for more episodes of Starbarians! Harry Partridge, if you're listening, this series could rock the very balls of the animated universe. I'm just saying...

Starbarians - Episode 1 (with hopefully more to follow)

Other Harry Partridge classics include Hal the Misinterpretive Porn Star, The Justin Bieber Show, Stephen the Lesbian and a whole whack of delightfully humoured music videos (of sorts). Check out his Happy Harry Toons YouTube Channel for more.

HAPPY FRIDAY: 9 of the best lols from 9GAG!

If you're a hipster (or just conventionally cool) you will have heard of 9GAG – the “just for fun” website. On 9GAG you can basically scroll down the page forever and enter into a timeless vortex of hilarity. 9GAG consists of a huge chunk of everything that has ever been considered as a meme on the Internet.

I was recently stuck in an airport and spent about 3 hours straight on 9GAG. I saved a few of my favourites and present my totally biased and opinionated version of the best of 9GAG.

The Best of 9GAG

Country Balls

The poor Germans have it rough. Not only do many of our favourite computer games constantly remind us of what bastards Hitler and his Nazi regime were, but the world still seems kak-scared of them taking over and putting us all on a diet of bratwurst and beer for some reason. Strange. I'm down with that.

Boogey Man

I'm sure most of us shared this phobia as sproglets (that's hipster-speak for "children" btw ... and that's an acronym for "by the way").

Cats lol

Out of the plethora of cat memes or "lolcats" on the web, this has to be one of my favourites. Same goes for this Chuck Norris gag below!

The best comic strip I've ever seen posted on 9GAG. I literally ROFLed!

Salomonic Physics

This last one isn't for gags but is rather touching I thought. It's especially moving if you love dogs and aren't a soul-less robot with the inability to feel. This is how 9GAG rolls - by mixing in humour with food for thought and adding a dash of LMAOnaise. Click on over to 9GAG again sometime and catch up. Or get stuck in an airport with a laptop and free wi-fi.

HAPPY FRIDAY: Why men die before women

Statistically speaking, the average First World woman lives 23.6% longer than the average First World man. Okay I made that up, as convincing as it sounded. But the point is that women today are out-living men more than ever – slowly building an underground, right-wing, feminist society that will one day rule the entire world.

But perhaps women do not owe their longevity to a well-balanced diet or anti-aging L'Oréal products. Perhaps it is freak accidents such as these that place men lower down on the survival scale...

HAPPY FRIDAY: How the Internet really started

WELL, you might have thought that you knew how the Internet started, but here's the true story ...

In ancient Israel, it came to pass that a trader by the name of Abraham Com did take unto himself a young wife by the name of Dot.

And Dot Com was a comely woman, broad of shoulder and long of leg. Indeed, she was often called Amazon Dot Com.

And she said unto Abraham, her husband: "Why dost thou travel so far from town to town with thy goods when thou canst trade without ever leaving thy tent?"

And Abraham did look at her - as though she were several saddle bags short of a camel load, but simply said: "How, dear?"

And Dot replied: "I will place drums in all the towns and drums in between to send messages saying what you have for sale, and they will reply telling you who hath the best price. And the sale can be made on the drums and delivery made by Uriah's Pony Stable (UPS)."

Abraham thought long and decided he would let Dot have her way with the drums. And the drums rang out and were an immediate success. Abraham sold all the goods he had at the top price, without ever having to move from his tent.

To prevent neighbouring countries from overhearing what the drums were saying, Dot devised a system that only she and the drummers knew.

It was called Must Send Drum Over Sound (MSDOS). She also developed a language to transmit ideas and pictures - Hebrew To The People (HTTP).

But this success did arouse envy. A man named Macabia did secrete himself inside Abraham's drum and began to siphon off some of Abraham's business. But he was soon discovered, arrested and prosecuted for insider trading.

And the young men did take to Dot Com's trading as doth the greedy horsefly take to camel dung. They were called Nomadic Ecclesiastical Rich Dominican Sybarites, or NERDS.

And lo, the land was so feverish with joy at the new riches and the deafening sound of drums that no one noticed that the real riches were going to that enterprising drum dealer, Brother William of Gates, who bought off every drum maker in the land. And indeed did he insist on drums to be made that would work only with Brother Gates' drumheads and drumsticks.

And Dot did say: "Oh, Abraham, what we have started is being taken over by others."

And Abraham looked out over the Bay of Ezekiel , or eBay as it came to be known. He said: "We need a name that reflects what we are."

And Dot replied: "Young Ambitious Hebrew Owner Operators."
"YAHOO," said Abraham. And because it was Dot's idea, they named it YAHOO Dot Com.

Abraham's cousin, Joshua, being the young Gregarious Energetic Educated Kid (GEEK) that he was, soon started using Dot's drums to locate things around the countryside. It soon became known as God's Own Official Guide to Locating Everything (GOOGLE).

And that is how it all began.
